Instagram: A Blessing or a Curse?


Yup, Instagram. Can you imagine life without social media? Probably not. Crazy how we got dependent on uploading the latest pic to Instagram, sending out tweets or hunt down some ideas for Pinterest. A few weeks ago I started to take Instagram seriously as it is a great way to promote my blog and it’s super easy to stay connected with your followers and also find other bloggers to follow. It’s a place where you can engage without writing whole blog posts. Nowadays, I have a feeling that everyone is prefering Instagram to reading blog posts. (My heart is crying…) But thanks to you I have at least one fellow reader.

Dry shampoo

What I swear by: Dry Shampoo! It can be one of the most wonderful tools in your beauty arsenal — as long as you’re using it properly, of course. There’s nothing worse than getting a beautiful blowout and having to wash it out the next day because of a greasy scalp. Thankfully, the hair gods created dry shampoo so we can keep our hair fresh for days. Not only does it save our perfectly styled hair from a wash (and some subsequent damage), it also saves us lazy ladies some time and energy in the morning. For those of you new to the game, or if you just want to learn more about the dirty hair phenomenon, read on to find out some helpful tips and tricks:

How to Wear Tommy Hilfiger

How to wear Tommy Hilfiger

Jeans! My favourite, they can be styled for all personality types and look pretty cool. If you’re like me, you probably can’t imagine a complete wardrobe without a pair (or seven). Jeans are so easy to combine, there’s no shame in wearing your favourite pair of jeans over and over again. My one piece at the moment: Tommy Hilfiger.

They are my fail-safe fashion item that I pull out when I have nothing else to wear—or when there’s no time to even think about it. Jeans are also one of my go-to pieces for any event, be it brunches, evening ‘dos, or for the office (if you’re lucky and not lumbered with a strict dress code). But sometimes, believe me, I open up my closet and have no clue how to combine my outfits. Terrible is it? To spare you these moments, I’ve hunted down an incredible ensemble to help you make the most of your denim collection. Here’s how I dress up:

Oh. My. God! I. Love. It! Is there a better way to kick of the work week than with pizza? I don’t think so…If you call yourself a pizza devotee then you really have to check out the Restaurant Bar Basso in Zurich, it’s the place where the best pizza in town is served. Located in the heart of Zurich, a quirky looking place near Selnau, just before the entrance to the City’s swimming baths, It’s hip, to be sure. The interior is in the best of taste. You get a direct view to the wood-fire oven where the pizzaiolo creates your yummy pizza.

The trendy place is always crowded, now matter if for lunch or dinner. The Bar Basso belongs to the same owner as the Rosso. The service is attentive and fresh, and on a sunny day, their colourful outdoor tables just overlooking the Sihl canal are a lovely place to enjoy a good cup of coffee.
